Traviana held her ground ALONE to defend her tweet, in which many others agreed with. If you disagree with anyone, do it in a respectful manner.
Although I disagree with Traviana’s tweet, I wanted her to explain her tweet because many people misinterpreted her reason for the tweet.
This problem of black athletes not acknowledging black women is a common issue in PWI’s black communities, as seen on the series, Grown-ish, but this separation is all a misunderstanding in our school at SDSU. We must understand that acknowledgment goes both ways, people are not obligated to do or say anything, and everyone does not act or think the same.
In addition, Twitter is where you can express your personal opinion so you cannot get mad for someone expressing their personal thoughts; however, still remember, who you tweet about may come to their attention and may cause a reaction. College athletes are not celebrities, they are students as well, and I say this because I think many people treat athletes as if they are on a higher pedestal when we are all in the same box. I think the disconnect in our university is simply the separation between the athletic department from the black organizations, and it affects the way we black students socialize as a whole.
